Module participation inquiries must be madewithin one week of the posting of your grade. Team facilitation grades are mailed to you using theinternal email messaging system. You have one week from the day that you receive your grade toinquire about your evaluation. I turn in grades on 5/14.Accessing GradesYou can check your grades by clicking “My Grades” in the course menu after the grade for eachassessment task is released. I do not necessarily post your team facilitation grades on the course site;however, as stated above, you will receive this information via an internal message.Course OrganizationI created multi-media lectures for our course. They are located under five module headings. Eachlecture is called a unit. These do not always coincide with your chapter headings. The module numbers,units and textbook chapters are located on your course schedule in this syllabus. Beginning and endingdates for Module participation are also on the course schedule.Accessing Course MaterialIn the Course Menu (on the left side of the screen), you will find a link called Course Homepage. Thisarea will have the following materials:• Getting Started - UTD eLearning informationCourse Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 6

Module 0: Begin here! – click on this  Dr. Z’s Video Introduction – my welcome to you. Please note that we will not complete a film analysis as stated in the introduction. The team facilitation project has been changed to the one described below under Team Facilitation Project. Of course you may use video clips.  Syllabus  Syllabus Quiz – may also be accessed under Assessment. Due 1/27/13 11:00 PM CT  Group Sign-up Sheet – use for team facilitation project  Personal Statements – may also be accessed from the Discussion Board Module 1 – Once you have completed the syllabus quiz at 100% you have access to Module 1 and are ready to go!Assignments / Course Learning Activities Personal Statement (2%) Due 1/27/13 11:00 PM CT Post your personal statement on the discussion board. Provide the following information in this order: 1. Your name 2. A description of your job and employer/industry information (current or previous) 3. Your familiarity with OB concepts (scan your textbook, the module outlines, or your course schedule for ideas) 4. Where you are located geographically 5. What you hope to gain from this course 6. Anything else that is important to you that will give us a fuller picture of who you are 7. You may also provide pictures of you, your spouse, your children, your best animal friend, your car, etc. Team Facilitation Project (18%) - Team Name Due 1/27/13 11:00 PM CT You will form your own teams at the beginning of the semester. Sign up for team membership under: Learning Modules: Module 0: Begin here! Group Sign-up Sheet. When you sign up for yourCourse Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 7
  • 8. team you also sign up for the OB topics(s) your team will facilitate based on the course schedule. By 1/27/13 have one, and only one, team member submit your team name to me under Assignments. Type (do not add an attachment) in your original team facilitation number (eg. TF1), OB topic (eg. Attitudes), your team name, and the name of your team members in alphabetical order. A private discussion area may be set up on the discussion board for internal group communications. Teams can schedule a live web conference for team work. Please see the Web Conferencing page for instructions on making a reservation and other web conference information. Team Facilitation Project – Directions Each team will facilitate an OB topic which you sign up for at the beginning of the semester (e.g. Team Faciliation 1 is Module 1: Unit 3 Attitudes (my multi-medias), Chapter 3 textbook: Attitudes and Job Satisfaction; dates 1/28-2/3). I believe that graduate students should critically evaluate this course material. Therefore, I have provided to you my thoughts in my lectures and encourage you to conduct research to further your and our knowledge. Your tasks include: listening to my lectures, reading the text and conducting some research. Then you get to educate your classmates about what you have learned (i.e. you get to be an expert in at least one area). Use questions, dialogue, PowerPoint presentations, Audios/Videos, web links, etc. to enhance your facilitation. Each team will have one week with which to facilitate discussions. You may divide up your team work any way you wish. For example, one of your team members may not be able to engage on the discussion board for the entire week of your facilitation. However, he/she may do a great deal of the preparatory work. This is fine – just like real life . Give your classmates ample opportunity to participate by posting early during the time window. If a team member is not participating in the project, please let me know as soon as possible so that I may encourage their participation. You will complete a team peer evaluation. The directions are provided following the Team Facilitation Criteria. I will email message you your team grade. Your individual grade is based on the team evaluation consensus. Team Facilitation Criteria (or what I want you to cover) For each of the three sections, create the following title headings and threads: 1. OB Topic 2. Case/Ethical Dilemma 3. Self-Assessment/Exercise Note: These typically post in reverse order, so post the Third Thread first. First Thread: OB TopicStep 1: What OB topics and issues are most relevant in your work environments? Apply the material tocurrent and/or historical events. Facilitate an interesting discussion with your classmates. Supplementthe facilitation with academic journals or other material. Do not merely reiterate the textbook material. Second Thread: Ethical Dilemma/Case IncidentStep 2: Discuss the Ethical Dilemma or Case Incident I have provided on your syllabus schedule. Bringout key concepts as they are related to the course material. Do not restrict yourself to your unit’sconcepts. Integrate other OB issues if relevant. Feel free to update the material based on refereedjournals, websites etc. Do not limit yourself to the questions provided in the textbook.Course Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 8
  • 9. Third Thread: Survey/Self-AssessmentsStep 3: Provide one or more Surveys/Self-Assessments related to your material. Calculate the resultsand provide them to our class. You may find a survey online, create one of your own, use one from yourworkplace etc. as long as there are no copyright restrictions. I have provided suggestions from your Self-Assessment Library. They are located on your syllabus schedule. These assessments will give you abetter understanding of your strengths/weaknesses etc. and will also allow you to compare yourselfwith your course colleagues. Just as you would with a research paper, provide citations when you using other peoples’ works, thoughts etc. Also, provide a reference list. Important Participation Information For Team Facilitations 1. If you are not the team facilitating the discussion, do not start a new thread. Reply to one or more of the three threads started by the facilitating team. 2. If you are facilitating the discussion, the facilitation will not count toward your participation grade. You must contribute to two other OB Concepts per module to receive full credit. For example, if you are Team Facilitation 1 you will facilitate discussions about Attitudes/Job Satisfaction for your Team Facilitation grade. You must also post messages on at least two different days under two of the following threads: Introduction to OB; Research and Diversity/Learning; Emotions/Moods. Directions for posting are located following the Team Peer Evaluation.Team Peer Evaluation (required) Due 5/7/13 11:00 PM CT or earlier I want all members to contribute fully to the team facilitation project; therefore, you are required to complete an evaluation of your participation and the participation of your team mates. Consider each member’s ability to adhere to deadlines, availability, interpersonal skills, creativity, leadership, and responsibility to the team. The Team Peer Evaluation is confidential. Team evaluations are submitted under the Assignment: Peer Evaluation link. Type in your evaluation. Do not add an attachment. Follow the guidelines below. There is no on-line evaluation form. If you fail to turn in the Team Peer Evaluation on time, I will deduct 10 points from your individual grade for the project. You must provide all of the following information to get credit for this requirement.Grading Rubric:Full contributor: (A) 100% of team points; contributed fully to the team project.Less than full: (B) 85% of the team grade (C) 75% of the team grade (F) 50% of the team grade (0) 0% of the team gradeCourse Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 9
  • 10. Overall Evaluation:I will review the feedback and determine the percentage of the team grade you have earned. It ismy hope that everyone receives an A and earns 100% of the team grade. If you are consistentlyrated low you may fail the team project. The moral of the story is “don’t be a social loafer”.Besides, this is a fun project! Also, it will help you learn how to get the most out of team membersin your work place.Provide the following information in this format.List team member names in alphabetical order by last name, and assign a grade to each. Includeyourself in the list.1. Explain the contributions that each team member made. Why did you grade each person the wayyou did? Be specific. Justify any grades you assign that are below an “A”.2. What worked well within your team and what would you do to improve your team process?3. What role did each team member take?Participation/Discussions (30% total; 6%/module) Graded Module Postings (Read carefully) Organizational Behavior concepts come alive on the discussion board. As such, all students are required to participate in class discussions. Submit original, thoughtful posts. You will find that if you keep up with the discussion board you will have an enriched educational experience. There is a great deal that you can learn from the ideas and work experiences of your fellow classmates and they from you. Feel free to share web sites and other resource information you have found useful. You do not have to read every message – choose the material you find most fascinating, interesting, useful etc. Finally, if you have a message for me follow the directions in the ungraded section below; do not post questions to me under graded threads. I read through the discussion posts; however, I cannot respond to all of them. This course generates a multitude of information and ideas. Enjoy them! I have organized our course into five modules. Each class member is responsible for participating in these discussions. For full participation credit, you will contribute at least two quality messages per module with at least one being a “reply” to another’s message. Each OB topic is facilitated by a team or by me and it is expected that you will engage in these discussions – don’t leave your classmates hanging. Your graded participation messages must be posted on at least two different days and address two different OB topics per module (e.g. Module 1: Unit 1 Introduction to OB – you may read one of my messages and “reply to it” under any of the three headings I started. Then, for example, under Module 1: Unit 3 Attitudes post another reply thread). This will assure that you understand and are able to apply many of the OB concepts while still allowing you the flexibility afforded by thisCourse Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 10
  • 11. online format. It is quite possible that the questions facilitating teams post give you ideas that do not directly address their questions. That is O.K. Post your thoughts. Remember, this is the on-line version of an in class discussion. Thoughts often take circuitous paths. You may post more than two times per module but please make them relevant and value-added to the discussion at hand. Do not dominate the discussions – this isn’t a contest. “I agree” and “you rock” type of replies are fine and help move the discussions forward. They do not, however, count for participation credit. It is my goal that you read what your classmates have to say and reply to them. Although we are not in a traditional classroom environment, we can have great discussions! Ungraded Postings If you want to post a message for me, post it under the Discussion area named: Messages for Dr. Z. For example, if you want to post a question for me regarding Quiz 1, post it under the Messages for Dr. Z. heading and create your own thread clearly labeled Quiz 1. Do not post it under a thread that is meant for some other discussion. It will get lost. If you want me to respond to a particular post under the graded module postings, please send a message to me under Messages for Dr. Z. and direct me to the particular message (e.g. Dr. Z. please reply to Student X posting under Communication, date). You may also post messages to me containing links or other course-relevant information that does not fit under the Graded Posts. l will also post course information on the bulletin board. You should keep up with my postings located in a separate discussion area: Messages from Dr. Z. You may post questions/comments to our TA under Messages for TA. You may also talk informally with your classmates in the Social Lounge. This is a good place for you to go to continue conversations started in the Graded discussion forums. For example, you may have discovered something in common with a classmate that is not relevant (i.e. value-added) to the class discussion. Grab a snack/beverage and go to the Social Lounge.Online Quizzes (50% total; 10%/module) To begin the semester, you must pass the Syllabus Quiz at 100%. It is the gateway to the course and can be found under Learning Modules: Begin here! or under Assessments. It will also help you learn how to use the quiz function so that you will be prepared for the graded course quizzes (e.g. saving each answer). The five graded quizzes (one per module) consist of multiple choice questions covering course materials including my multi-media files. The quiz questions are in chapter order; however, they are randomized within chapters. I count on you to keep the quiz information confidential. Do not download or keep copies of the quizzes. Refer to the Student Conduct & Discipline and Academic Integrity Policies. The graded quizzes assess definitional, conceptual, and applied levels of proficiency. You must complete Module 1 quiz before accessing Module 2 information and so on. When you finish the course, you will know many definitions, theories and applications which will help you to better succeed in your work environment. You have a generous time window within which to complete the quizzes. Do not request to take your quizzes at a different time. Please plan accordingly.Course Syllabus Template updated 3/4/2013 Page 11
  • 12. You may access self-test quizzes for each textbook chapter. These are based on the textbook and are optional. I have not vetted these questions provided by the publisher. They also do not contain some material from my multi-media lectures. You can access quizzes by clicking the Quizzes link on the course menu or by using the quiz icon under the associated module. Each quiz is timed and can be accessed only once within the scheduled time window. Please read the on-screen instructions carefully. After each quiz is graded and released, go into the “My Grades” area and click on your quiz grade. You can see the allotted time window prior to beginning the Assessment. I provided the number of questions by quiz, unit, chapter and the time allotment below. For example, Quiz 1 covers Module 1 which contains Units 1-3 lectures and Chapters 1-4 textbook. There are 50 questions broken down as Chapter 1: questions 1-10; Chapter 2: questions 11-24; Chapter 3: questions 25-35; Chapter 4: questions 36-50. You have 75 minutes to complete the quiz. There are some quiz questions based solely on my multi-media lectures, make sure you listen to them. Plus, they are kind of fun and, I hope, interesting. Do not expect that you can finish the quiz by looking up information in the textbook or on-line for the “first time” while you are completing the quiz. Organize your information and do your best to understand the material before you attempt the quizzes. Based on years of experience, I suggest that you do not wait until the last day to complete your quiz – especially if you are not used to this delivery system. The quizzes are open book, open notes but must be completed alone. Do not share quiz information in any form with anyone. I have provided study guides for the quizzes. They are located on your course homepage. They are quite beneficial. I suggest you use them to guide your reading and understanding of the material. All quiz windows open at 5:00 AM Central Time (CT) and expire at 11:00 PM CT.
